Hmmm...I'm going to knit my husband. That'll crack him up.
Way to go Emma!

Hellooo! I've been lurking for a while but when I saw this I decided it was time to join in. Your doll is fabulous! I had a difficult time with this one and I already knew how to knit on dpns. Five days? Yeesh! Took me weeks because I kept getting frustrated and putting mine down. I knit my boyfriend last May, for his birthday. Hope you don't mind if I hijack your post and provide links to a couple photos. How did you attach his hair? I had the toughest time imitating my boy's mop and there was no way I could find yarn anywhere near his lovely shade of ginger.

Little Sam
Sporting his often worn, frequently hated (by me) purple cords and the always present black Chucks, while clutching his beloved Neko Case record.

Big Sam - The real deal
I tried adding a beard to the doll but it wouldn't look like anything except strange facial fungus.

Awww. I love your little ginger guy, he's awesome!
I can see how you took time over him; he's perfect.
Mine was more, "Agh, no time! Must knit!"
To attach the hair I just pulled a strand of wool through a stitch and tied a knot; making 2 strands of hair. And once I thought there was enough, he got a tidy-up haircut. However, this was highly boring (and at around 3am on Valentines day) so he doesn't exactly have a full head of hair...

Oh, and thank you to the everybody for compliments!

I think this year I'll have to be knitting my own self. The boy keeps complaining that little him has no one to play with.  Sad

Your Sam reminds me of my Sam.  Less the corduroy pants and beard.  Still, though.  Neko Case = awesome.
